I try to forget her.
Growing up together, Conor and I shared all our firsts.
First love, first kiss, first…
Not all our firsts.
We were sixteen the night she was violently assaulted while I helplessly watched.
I'll never forget the sounds of her suffering.
Or my inconsolable agony when she left Oklahoma.
Years later, she returns to honor our teenage pact.
Except the boy she loved is gone, replaced by a ruthless cattle rancher knotted with secrets.
She doesn't know my dark cravings or the trails of sin that lead to her.
I don't deserve her, but one truth remains.

This is an amazing story. I absolutely loved the storyline and I loved the characters. This author always has amazing storylines. The only thing lacking in my opinion is there isn’t enough depth to the story and to the characters to make me love the characters more. What I did read, I did love the characters but I just wanted more to them. More dialogue, more situations happening that would make me love them even more and really make me attached to them. That’s why I gave this a 4 star.
Knotted by Pam Godwin
This stand-alone of three in the series is an easy read until it gets hard-core and messed up in the mind with a rape scene and the therapy that follows. It’s just not a normal thinkers’ story - unless you have an understanding of bondage and how it can be therapeutic in so many ways; but honestly, this story is a little disturbing in how easy the author tries to suffuse love, a third-party rape and bondage in order to make things (ahem!) right.
Since I am one who can grasp the concept (and honestly like the bondage angle) of using any means toward therapy, I would have given more stars - if not for the point mentioned (again, easily trying to suffuse a narrative like it’s such a normal thing to consider), and, leaving one easily incorporated loose end left out in such a way that the reader tries to rewrite the final confrontation to neatly “tie-up” the loose end - be it: harsh and without familial love to help the culprit / a pop-in and pop-out to make nice / a secondary confrontation. The character I refer to was a big part of the story that was left to fizzle to nothingness.
No matter what, the author does make it easy to read and strings the reader along well enough. And, the “playlist” was a nice addition; for one who loves the selections.
This was not at all what I expected. The characters were really engaging and as the story moves through the timeline of their lives, you become more invested. I couldn’t put it down and can’t wait to read the rest of the stories in this series.
